Fix Common Multi-Monitor Mode Errors

One of the most common errors is when you try to enter the Multi-Monitor mode and then you may encounter the error message ‘QuickBooks can’t enter Multi-Monitor mode’.

Reasons behind the Multi-Monitor mode error:

  • Using One Window View Mode: If your Windows preferences are set to the One Window then you’ll be not able to enter the Multi-Monitor mode in QuickBooks. To resolve this error, you have to set the preferences to Multi-window from the One window. To do this go to Edit<Preferences<Desktop view.
  • Using QuickBooks in Super Max mode: Few transactions from Windows allow you to expand to the entire screen. To fix this error, you have to unmaximize the transaction window and then you’ll be able to enter the Multi-Monitor window.

QuickBooks Multi-Monitor Mode Limitations

  • DPI setting is not at the default (100%): The QuickBooks Multi-Monitor mode will not work if the DPI (font scaling) settings of your displays are not at the default (100%). You have to do this on all the screens/monitors.
  • Mixed DPI (Font Scaling) Settings: If the DPI settings on every screen are different then you won’t be able to enter Multi-Monitor mode. For example, your laptop has 150% DPI settings and on the other screen, its default (100%) screen and another screen has 125% screen settings.
  • Third-Party Multi-Monitor application: If you are using any other third-party Multi-Monitor software (like Display-Link, Display-Fusion, etc) then it won’t be compatible with the QuickBooks Multi-Monitor Mode. We recommend you use Windows native Multi-Monitor support.
  • Tiling/Cascade of Windows: You will not be able to use functions like tiling/cascade in Windows as soon as QuickBooks Multi-Monitor mode is enabled.
  • Moving the Programs Windows: You cannot move the QuickBooks Program window (main program window) if you are in the QuickBooks Multi-Monitor mode. If you want to move the main program window then first you should exit from the Multi-Monitor mode.

Common issues with Multi-Monitor mode

  1. There is an appearance of dialogue boxes on the other monitors

Sometimes, the dialog box may not appear on the screen you working on. For Example: Suppose the home page that you open shows on your right monitor and if you select invoices then this page may appear on the left side of the monitor. So for this, you need to shift manually or toggle to the left monitor.
